George Sodini rests in heaven now because he professed a faith in Jesus years before his shooting rampage, according to a leader at his church. "George is going to heaven, but he's not going to get his rewards," said the leader. And Sodini won't be offered all of heaven's benefits because of his sin.
But wait, there's more...
Shortly after 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sodini walked into an LA Fitness Center and opened fire in an aerobics room filled with women. In addition to killing three, he wounded nine others before killing himself.
Sodini wrote in his online diary that the pastor at his church convinced him it was possible to commit mass murder and still be welcomed into heaven.
In his blog, Sodini alleged that the Rev. Alan “Rick” Knapp taught church members that committing such a crime could be forgiven.
“Holy [expletive], religion is a waste. But this guy teaches (and convinced me) you can commit mass murder then still go to heaven. Ask him,” Sodini wrote.
There is so much wrong here… where do you start? Can a murderer go to heaven? Sure. (Hopefully David and Moses will make it). Is it responsible to teach your church that committing mass murder is a forgiveable offense? Ahh… I don’t think so.
And from the quotes above… I’m wondering how sincere the murderer was in his faith.. Doesn’t sound real stable to me.
What do you think?
